 Give the Gift of Savings this Christmas! The country’s first-ever mobile-based savings bank takes the season of giving to heart

 The gift of a better and brighter tomorrow is most certainly one of  the best presents one could ever receive and BPI Globe BanKO makes sure that this is what it offers Filipinos this holiday season and all year round with GiftKO, a pre-loadedBanKO ATM card.

Available in denominations of P100, P300 and P500, GiftKOmakes a great gift idea for those with the propensity to save. Instead of giving plain cashgifts to one’sinaanak, assistant, or evenkasambahay, a BanKO account containing the cash as an initial deposit would encourage them to save wisely and securely.

 “It’s a one-off gift that reaps long-term rewards, allowing them to enjoy the benefits of safeguarding their hard-earned money properly,” BPI Globe BanKO President John Rubio points out.“With a BanKO account, you can check your balance, pay bills, send money, buy load, receive international remittance and more—all just through your mobile phone.”

Rubio adds that opening a BanKO account is relatively easier than doing so with a traditional bank, making services more accessible and the act of formally saving less intimidating.…

Who doesn’t love ice creams? I am not a sweet tooth but come on, ice cream brings you heaven! And what’s the best way to serve ice cream other than serving it with liquid nitrogen? If you are a fan of liquid nitrogen desserts then Winter Garden Desserts is the perfect place. I have tried other places like Iscreamist and one major advantage of Winter Garden Desserts is that they have a larger and cozier place. It has a dreamy ambiance to it perfect for the frozen delights they are offering.

Located south of Manila, Camp Allen in Majayjay, Laguna features this 2.5 hour rafting trip consisting of 21 rapids.

It’s very perfect since you can just finish the whole adventure including the travel time back and forth in just one day. So if you’re looking for a fresh spot to visit, this one’s perfect for you.
